Awaken to Wisdom Keeping
In the west, we have become deeply disconnected from our wisdom traditions. We have forgotten how to honour the sacred and make meaning out of our lives, how to be in relationship with nature and her cycles, how to honour the dead, and how to practice in the old ways.
In short, we have forgotten how to become wisdom keepers.
At its very core, today's world is suffering from this loss of wisdom and the initiatory pathways it emerges from.
The Wisdom Keepers Collective seeks to meet this challenge and offer a way forward.
join the Circle
We are all on a journey of becoming.
What are you seeking?
Learning ancestral, animistic ways of life rooted in safe ritual practice and nature connection are deeply transformative - both on the personal level, and the collective.
But we can't do it in isolation.
We become wisdom keepers by collectively remembering who we are
4 Core features
of the Membership:
This membership focuses on four features, including:
1. Nature Healer Program
2. A monthly masterclass on an element of wisdom keeping (keep reading for details)
3. A monthly Wisdom Keepers Circle live call
4. Suggested homework practices and study
Three Cornerstones of Wisdom Keeping:
Every part of this membership weaves together and develops proficiency in three core areas:
- Nature Connection
- Insular Celtic Animist + Ancestral Traditions
- Personal Transformation, Growth, and Learning
The interaction of each cornerstones creates rich areas of exploration critical to our time, including making meaning from our lived experiences, receiving guidance from the living world of nature and our ancestors, and cultural repair.
Through cultivating relationship with these three cornerstones, we step onto the path of wisdom keeping.
Become the wisdom keeper the world needs through carrying ancestral knowledge, being a bridge between the seen and unseen worlds, and becoming profoundly capable of metabolizing your raw life experiences into gold.
Nature Healer Program
The Nature Healer Program is a distillation of my own experiences and training in making meaning out of our lives through nature connection.
This program follows a foundational process for translating our lived experience into meaningful story with the guidance and insight of nature.
It has been shown that making meaning out of our lives is incredibly healing. There will always be more layers to explore, and this foundational process is like a map to navigate meaning-making in direct relationship with nature.
Monthly Masterclasses weave the core principles into elements of wisdom keeping, including areas such as:
Nature connection and communication, and receiving transformative insight and guidance
Intuitive development, heart-awareness, and imaginal ("shamanic") journeying, as indicated by Celtic Insular tradition and lore
Insular Celtic cosmology including the Otherworld, the Sidhe, folklore, deities, connection to land and place, the Nemeton (+ much more)
Historical exploration of Insular Celtic cosmology and life ways, from archaeology, texts, oral knowledge, historical accounts, and living culture
Connecting with ancestors and creating ancestral reverence practices
Seasonal celebrations and the wheel of the year
Animist practice and theory
Socio-ecological justice principles of cultural healing
Guest speakers occasionally invited to speak about their expertise
Teachings accompanied by relevant experiential practice covering a range of animist + ritual topics
Sound techniques for ritual safety and discernment
A core community gathering space & monthly calls for connection & support
This private community works like a Facebook group, but without the need to be on a social media platform.
Gather with like-minded people on a similar journey to go deeper in your learning and expansion.
The Wisdom Keepers Circle is offered through monthly live calls that bring us together for witnessing and support as we navigate the waters of cultural healing.
Each monthly call expands upon the masterclass for that month, giving participants an opportunity to go deeper into their inquiries and practice.
In the circle, we meet respectfully as equals in recognition of the complex and rich lived wisdom that we each carry from our unique experiences.
Core Values of the Membership:
Authentic teachings based in research and accuracy
Animistic, earth-honouring worldview, and eco-literacy
Empowerment and proficiency in intuitive, ritual, and earth-based, community-focused spiritual practice
Developing wild consciousness is central to wisdom keeping
All of the offerings in the membership are designed to bring you into greater awareness of what it means to do the work of cultural healing in our time.
Expanding our sense of self and awareness to include ecological, ancestral, and societal/community consciousness is vital to wisdom keeping.
How does the
membership work and what's included?
Each month, a masterclass on a related subject is released.
The Wisdom Keepers Circle is offered via monthly zoom calls which bring us together to go deep into our personal practice, be witnessed and held in the community, and to encourage and empower each other on our path.
Nature Healer Program
Guided practices and intuitive exercises are offered to celebrate the seasons, connect with ancestors and guides, relate with nature, and for many other areas of exploration.
The community space (similar to an FB group, but on a private platform unconnected to any social media) is available for members to connect and share stories.
Seasonal celebrations are marked through community ceremony and PDF guides for inspiration.

With this in mind, there is a HUGE amount of value packed into this membership - plus bonus material and classes added every month.

Practitioner & Teacher
Sacred Earth Grove
Hi, I'm Robyn
With a passion for nature connection and spiritual philosophy. I have been on a journey of exploring my animistic and ancestral traditions for 25+ years.
These studies have taken me through the fields of Restorative Justice, Eco-therapy, Nature Connection, Social Work, Herbalism, Forest Schooling, and Insular Celtic spiritual traditions.
My offerings to the world combine circle-keeping, relating to the consciousness of nature, and helping others raised in industrial culture create an earth-based spiritual practice that tends to the mythic language of the soul.
I practice by spending deep, reflective time in nature, dream-work, ritual, ancestral reverence, adhering to natural cycles/moon phases, and learning about the history of my people and the ecology of the various lands I have lived upon (across the UK and Canada).
I live everything I teach, and am also a mother to 3 sweet daughters who are always teaching me more about living in balance!
